An Instragram photo showing rapper 2 Chainz posing with two Maryland State Troopers has received more than 45,000 likes since being posted yesterday. Why? Because people love the police, that’s why.

According to the New York Daily News, Maryland State Police stopped a van for speeding Thursday night and discovered “a strong odor of burnt marijuana.” The report reads that “Maryland State Police could not confirm the authenticity of the photograph but is investigating.” How long would that take, approximately?

Perez Hilton reports that the police “begged” for a photo with the rapper.
